The Amish craftsmen and their local employees in Ohio, Indiana, and Pennsylvania are devoted to quality. While you may be surprised by the number of machines used in the shop, keep in mind that nearly all of our shops work off the grid, powering their work by generators. This technology rarely makes its way into their homes and lives outside the shop. We continue to communicate with them primarily by phone, fax, mail, and personal visits, as most woodworkers don’t use email or computers. This video shows the attention to detail present in every stage of the build process. It’s the details that make all the difference. As more machines are used in the production process, they are added in pursuit of quality, not automation. The more exact the craftsmanship, the stronger the joints and the longer the furniture lasts for you and your family.
